Together We Grow – Nourishing Our Communities
Together We Grow
What do you get when you combine a community café, a community grocer and a community bike works? Plus a repair café, a sewing workshop, garden sharing, and a honey-making enterprise? Together We Grow is a film about building community resilience and you can find out how people came together in an urban centre in New Zealand and did it.
Following the success of some recent Meet the Producer film nights in Carlow Town and Tullow, we are pleased to be in Bagenalstown, County Carlow on Tuesday, 20th February 2024 in the Presentation de la Salle Secondary School, Bagenalstown, registration at 7.15pm for a prompt 7.30pm start for a film, conversation and refreshments.
Together We Grow from Happen Films is a 40 minute film created in a suburb in New Zealand, where a transformative social enterprise began. And it all started with a woman named Julia who volunteered to help some kids and teachers out in a local school food garden.
Following the screening, we will have a panel of County Carlow community growers talking about the challenges and opportunities of having community growing spaces – be that growing vegetables, supporting eco-systems, or simply taking care of our mental health. Our panel will be moderated by Dee Sewell who is herself a wealth of knowledge and experience on gardening in our communities.
Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided, but booking is advisable via Eventbite.
We hope to see you there!
